Shropshire Council

Overview

A number of local, regional and national organisations are working together to deliver potential housing and employment land developments in Oswestry, Shropshire’s second largest market town.

Led by Shropshire Council, the work involves Homes England, Highways England, The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Oswestry Town Council, the Environment Agency, Oswestry BID and many other key stakeholders. It includes improvements to Mile End roundabout, the development of the Oswestry Innovation Park, and the delivery of housing and employment land.

This collaborative work supports the key priorities identified within Shropshire Council’s Economic Growth Strategy and the emerging Oswestry Economic Growth Strategy, currently in development.

This is an important opportunity to design quality developments as a focal point ‘Gateway to Oswestry’.

The Oswestry Gateway will create a positive impression of Oswestry, encouraging more people to take the opportunity to stop and bring positive benefits to the town and surrounding area. We want this this to be a gateway for the residents and communities of Oswestry to be proud of.
